NEW ORLEANS - The NOPD is looking for a man who stole a leaf blower from a house in Algiers.  The case is the latest to roll on the Wheel of Justice.

Surveillance footage shows the entire crime.  It shows a car drive down the 3500 block of Bennett Street.  At one point, a man exits the passenger side of the car and approaches a home.

Seconds later, the man runs from the porch with a leaf blower in one hand and what appears to be a weed wacker in the other.

The people who live in the home begin chasing him, so he drops the weed wacker but makes it to his getaway car with the leaf blower.  The man got into a dark gray four-door Toyota sedan and fled.

The crime happened on September 11 at about 10:30 in the morning.  To see the surveillance video, click on the video button above.
